In a remote psychiatric hospital in Sweden, there is a man known as Thomas Quick who has been convicted of unspeakable crimes. Over the course of multiple trials, he would tell his brutal stories—of stabbings, stranglings, rape, incest, cannibalism—to almost anyone who would listen. Then, after his eighth and final murder conviction, he went silent for nearly a decade. In the last few years, though, he has been thinking about all he has said and done, and now he has something new to confess: He left out the worst part of all.

He was methodical, he rode the highways, and he preyed on teenage girls. Girls who'd run away. Girls no one would miss. In the summer of 1985, the author was such a girl. One night on I-95, she hitched a ride from a stranger and endured the most terrifying moments of her life. Now, years later, she returns to the scenes of her fugitive youth looking for clues to that terror—and the girls who lost their lives to it

Corey Starliper of Tewksbury, Massachusetts believes he has solved
the last Zodiac serial killer
cipher and has identified the person who terrorized northern California in the late '60s. "Zodiac sent encrypted communication to area newspapers, taking credit for the killings and warning of more to come ..." His most famous: a 340-character cipher, "was mailed to the San Francisco Chronicle, according to zodiackillerfacts.com
. To this day, the cipher has not been completely cracked. Starliper, however, believes he has found the solution to that code." [more inside]

Then, in November 2007, exactly three years after the disappearance of Simjanoska, another woman from Kičevo went missing. Fifty-six-year-old Lubica Ličoska was, like Simjanoska, a custodian, and she also lived in the same section of town. When the similarities were noted, locals suddenly remembered Gorica Pavelska. She was seventy-three, a retired custodian who went missing in May 2003. No one had thought much of it at the time. She might have suffered a stroke in some remote place, they had speculated, or gone to work in Skopje. No trace of her was ever found and the whole business had been forgotten. But now it appeared that little Kičevo was home to a serial killer, and Vlado Taneski’s editors smelled a big story.

For many people who lived in Houston in the early 1970s, trick or treat brings up memories of "The Candy Man," serial killer Dean Corll
. He, along with accomplices David Brooks and Wayne Henley (YouTube)
, kidnapped, raped, and tortured to death 27 boys between the ages of thirteen and eighteen between 1970 and 1973. Thirty-seven years after the bodies of their victims were discovered in mass graves in southwest Houston and the Bolivar Peninsula, three still were unidentified until recently when the efforts of forensic anthropologist Sharon Derrick
identified victim ML73-3349, now known to be Randall Lee Harvey

Thirty years ago today, Gary Gilmore
was executed at the Utah State Prison, the first prisoner to be put to death since the moratorium on executions was established four years prior, and the first execution in Utah in sixteen years. His refusal to appeal his death sentence confounded his lawyers and attracted the attention of the ACLU
, among others, who fought to keep Gilmore alive, against his wishes. His frustrations with the uncertainty of his sentence led him to attempt suicide in prison twice.
His life and death have been recounted in several books
, inspired a few songs
, and even an SNL
skit. His final words, “Let’s do it,” led to a major marketing campaign

All the scripts to The Inside.
Tim Minear, an altogether rather talented producer/writer/director behind Firefly
, and Wonderfalls
, created a serial killer show with a difference back in 2005. It was interesting, weird, critically acclaimed, and on FOX, so of course it got cancelled after 13 episodes. Luckily, Mr. Minear
has posted on his own site the draft scripts to every episode, as written by himself and his talented friends.
They make for fun reading, for those who don't mind reading scripts and would like some tightly-written, throughline-having, serial killery goodness without that funny CSI

Ever thought about setttling down on a quiet farm? Possibly one in rural Wisconsin? How about one with a little history?
Just because eBay pulled the auction
doesn't mean it's not for sale. Great for the eccentric collector,
I'd think. And there's a perfect band
to play at the housewarming party.

is hot. I'd do her. The thing is she holds the world record (according to GWR
) for being the most prolific serial killer in history. Supposedly, she may have tortured and killed
as many as 2000 young girls, which probably makes her bi or lesbian (not that there's anything wrong with that). Some say she is the real inspiration
for Bram Stoker's Dracula

Serial killer blog.
Well not really. More of a religious rant than true crime novel, but the case of the Son of Sam murders has been reviewed for the possibility of a second suspect. An article in Fortean Times
may have opened the floodgates, but I am unable to find an online source. Did anybody else see this story?
